with the war in iraq when george w. bush ran for reelection against john kerry, but voters by a small margin seemed to believe george bush would be the better leader. it cannot be said that the vote reflected a referendum on george w. bush's first term. the importance of the communications skill of a candidate to not be discounted as a factor, however. but all of this misses a different valuation that needs to be taken into account in judging between incumbent barack obama and his challenger mitt romney. that is the jinx of the second term on many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elective to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 38% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security and economic climate after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest the gamble should not be taken. simply that history interplay in with politics might give us pause. what does history predict about a second term for barack obama? were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office? what are the
